The North Fork Ospreys were ousted from the Hamptons Collegiate Baseball League semifinals Sunday as Rob Vani and Phil Capra belted home runs in the Montauk Mustangs’ 10-7 victory at the Montauk School.

Capra (3-for-3) drove in four runs as the third-seeded Mustangs advance to the best-of-three league finals against the top-seeded Westhampton Aviators. Vani went 3-for-5 with two doubles, scoring three runs and driving in two.

Bobby Romano and Dan Schock homered for the Ospreys, who were beaten, 13-4, in the first game of the series Saturday night. Teammate Nick Bellafronto went 3-for-3 with an RBI, a walk and a run.

Joseph Broderick was the winning pitcher. He gave up eight hits and seven runs (four earned) over seven innings.

For the second game in a row, the Mustangs staged a six-run rally in the second inning.
